Hints are there in contents. You are allowed to Google!
Marilyn Monroe is probably the best person to start this list with because we are all unanimously in awe of her beauty. Although she has not been around for a long time now, she remains an iconic person. We are still sad that she died half a century ago at only 36. Take a leaf from her book: “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
The Russian-American Natalie Wood has never been a stranger to the limelight because she has been acting since she was young. However, her true claim to fame would have to be her portrayal of Maureen O’Hara in Miracle on 34th Street. She was also in Rebel Without a Cause and West Side Story. She had been with the captain of the yacht, her co-star Christopher Walken, and her husband Robert Wagner when she died while in Santa Catalina for a vacation. She was 43 years old when she died. The case was reopened recently, with Wagner now a person of interest.
We are sure this is one name you are familiar with. The British-American actress Elizabeth Taylor might have been born in London, although her family moved to California before World War Two broke out. Even when she was little, she was already so gorgeous her mother told her she could be a movie star. She was born with a genetic mutation that gave her two rows of eyelashes! She used to be a child star before she became one of the most prominent actresses in Hollywood. She has appeared in many projects, fought for Jewish advocacies, and promoted awareness of AIDS.
In the ‘80s and ‘90s, no one could compare to Michelle Pfeiffer in the field of show business. She was beautiful, but let us not forget how talented she was at acting. In the beginning, she got only pretty girl roles, although this all changed when she managed to snag a supporting role in Scarface during the late ‘70s. Needless to say, this role opened up more opportunities for her career growth. A contributor for Daily Telegraph explained that she has “the kind of beauty you find yourself involuntarily taking a moment to marvel at mid-conversation.”
She lived for 103 years! Died in Oct 1019. She outlived most of her costars from the Golden Era despite being older than most of them. She is also among the last remaining people who got to work with The Three Stooges. Can you believe that she broke into the industry over eighty years ago? Whoa.
Actress Charlize Theron grew up on a South African farm. She did not have the easiest childhood, especially because her father was an alcoholic who ended up dead at the hands of her mother in the name of self-defense. She was originally a ballet dancer, although she had to quit the art when she got injured. It was only a matter of time before modeling scouts started to recruit her, although she became truly famous when she went into acting. She won an Academy Award for Best Actress as well.
Raquel Welch might have appeared in a number of films before she starred in One Million Years B.C., although it was the film that shot her into pop culture stardom. Aside from that, she also appeared in Bandolero! Bedazzled, 100 Rifles, and Legally Blonde. She was also given the “Imagen Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award” in 2001.
Rita Hayworth basically spent all of her life in show business. She had been a dancer in New York before moving to California. During the ‘30s, she appeared in a number of dancing movies. The next decade gave her the chance to bring more serious characters to life. Sadly, the ‘50s had not been great to her in terms of her finances, mental health, and other personal problems. She passed away in 1987.
Ursula Andress gets to call herself the first Bond girl! Of course, she earned this title when she starred in Dr. No opposite Sean Connery. She had a Swiss-German accent, which the editors dubbed over.
French actress Catherine Deneuve made it big on the international scene when she worked on Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, which is interesting because all the dialogue had been sung instead of spoken. She later appeared in Repulsion, which only made her more popular than she already was. In 1985, she got the opportunity to become the face of Marianne, the French symbol of liberty. She has recently spoken out against the #MeToo movement.
Ann-Margret Olsson is a Swedish-American star who became very famous during the ‘60s and ‘70s. The versatile performer earned her big break when she worked as a recording artist in Bye Bye birdie. She is also known for her work in Who’s Tommy, Law and Order: SVU, and Ray Donovan. It has been half a century since she became famous, although there is no lack of love for this celebrity!
Her beauty has made certain things hard for her. In fact, one director she worked with said that she is a “consummate actress, hampered by beauty.” She made a name for herself with her stellar performances in Gone with the Wind and A Streetcar Named Desire. She died of tuberculosis in 1967.
Ava Gardner had a southern accent so thick that MGM found her to be incomprehensible! Nonetheless, she worked hard, and they signed her. She worked for five years before she made her breakthrough with The Killers, which marked the start of her popularity. She enjoyed fifty years in the biz, although she suffered a number of health issues over the years. In 1990, the actress died of pneumonia.
During the Second World War, she worked on a technique known as “frequency hopping”, which is useful when it comes to radio signal jamming and controlling torpedos. She patented it, and it is now used by the military.
Sharon Tate has a truly tragic story, doesn’t she? We are sure that people will never forget to associate her with the Manson family murders. When she was younger, she already got lots of attention for her beauty. She eventually made it big on the big screen, primarily in dramas and comedies. She later got married to Roman Polanski, whose child she had been carrying when she died.
Ingrid Bergman was best known for playing the female lead in Casablanca. In reality, she had already been enjoying a successful career in the Swedish and German film industry before then. She became so famous on an international level that a biographer said the actress is “arguably the most international star in the history of entertainment.” Meanwhile, Anatole Litvak said, “Through all her troubles she held to the conviction that she had been true to herself and it made her quite a person.”
Audrey Hepburn (born Audrey Kathleen Ruston; 4 May 1929 – 20 January 1993) was a British actress and humanitarian. Recognised as a film and fashion icon, she was ranked by the American Film Institute as the third-greatest female screen legend in Golden Age Hollywood, and was inducted into the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame.
Notable movies: Roman Holiday, Sabrina, Funny Face, The Nun’s Story, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Charade, My Fair Lady, Wait Until Dark
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
No list like this one would be complete without her. She went into modeling when she was in college and became Miss World in 1994. She later starred in Bollywood movies. Derek Elley said she boasts of a “delicately sensual presence and physical grace”.
